Are you suffering from pain in the shoulder? The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the body, granting us the freedom to move and reach as we please. Unfortunately, the shoulder joint is surrounded by nerves, tendons, and other tissues which can all be irritated and cause pain. When tendons, muscles, or ligaments around the joint stretch or tear, it can cause pain directly in the shoulder and can even cause pain nearby or in your neck.
As an extremely mobile joint that plays a central role in the movement of your arm, we understand how tough it can be when you experience pain in a joint which is used for nearly all daily activities. Shoulder pain often strikes in individuals with hobbies such as tennis, gardening, golf, throwing, cleaning, and many others.

It is easy to notice the moment you are experiencing any irritation or pain in your shoulder, but it is difficult to pinpoint the cause of your pain simply because there are many problems that can trigger it.
